Natalie's Score: 87/100

A terrific, full-bodied red wine for the price! This dark-fruited Argentine wine is made from the country's classic Malbec grape, which produces luscious, round wines like this one. Aromas of blackberry jam, toasty oak, smoke and mocha. Perfect for gourmet hamburgers with all the fixins.

Malbec food pairings: full-flavored meaty casseroles, liver, rib roast with a coffee and pepper rub, sausages, tenderloin.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Engaging aromatics of smoky black fruit lead to rich and spicy grilled blackberry flavours. Full bodied with supportive but approachable tannin. Delicious alongside a hearty beef stew. Enjoy through 2018. Tasted Oct 2014.
Alice Kubicek rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby, cooked fruits and smokey overtones, with flavours of jamminess. figs, raisins and prunes. Medium acids and tannins, very well balanced and ready to drink on its own, with cheese or with steaks and frites. Excellent value for price.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bright red berry and cherry aromas, with hints of leather, spice and pepper. Tart red cherry and spice on the palate with grippy young tannins.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Loads of black pepper in the aroma, as well as leather, and young black cherry. A nice, full bllack cherry taste, with the sames black pepper and spice from the nose, as well as some tannins tending towards the grippy side.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Medium intensity with purplish hues. Still a young wine at this point, but has some nice floral, raspberry and blackberry aromas, mingling with leather and vegetal notes. The flavours are also berry fruit and leather. A relatively complex wine for the price.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with a purple hue. Stewed fruit, prunes, wood smoke on the nose. Youthful, with fresh dark berries, cola, and vanilla on the palate. Medium bodied, with medium acid and tannins make this value priced Malbec a great crowd pleasing option for any gathering. Would complement BBQ fare or enjoy on its own. Tasted November 2014.

Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nov 22, 2014: Deep purple, high toned nose, plum, grapey, berry with floral/vilolet a bit of bread and spice.
Medium full bodied, a little raisined, plummy, soft and cushy with medium acidity and gentle tannins with a hotish finish. Fire up the grill for BBQ burgers and steaks.
Kimberly Inksater rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

This Malbec has young aromas and flavours: vegetal, dark berries and pepper. The black pepper is predominant on the palate. With medium high acidity and tannins this wine would pair well with hamburgers and other meats prepared on the grill.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
